Monster Fest VII: Monster Fest Meets the Wolf Man

Hey Superfans!

It’s that time again, time for another frightastic edition of our annual MONSTER FEST program! For those of you Superfans new to Fantasmo, MONSTER FEST is a daylong convention which features panels, special guests, costume contests, film screenings, etc. I have to say this year’s edition may be our best yet, as it highlights a special anniversary and features some of the coolest guests we’ve ever had the privilege of welcoming. The date of the program is Saturday, October 2nd, and it will be held here at Chesapeake Central Library (298 Cedar Road, Chesapeake, VA, 23322) as always.
